Question

If it is drivable. Have someone drive it and follow it down the road if it does a thing I call dog tracking.
Kinda looks like its going sideways and straight at the same time. Then the frame maybe bent.

yeah unfortunately i cant drive it on the road because the driver door doesnt shut because of the dent. So what i want to know is it worth it to get it fixed with 60k miles on it. Everything else is perfect

I would remove the inner panel an hammer the dent out so I could drive it .I have driven worst .. Take to a shop to see how much it would cost. What does it look like from under the car ?
